Like I said..........get rid of Holland. Once the season ticket holders start complaining and cancelling.........he'll be gone and hopefully take Babcock with 'em. One of worst inspirational motivators in professional sports.

Bring in Larionov as Head Coach...Fetisov as an assistant!

Juckf****** Pott? :blink:

I think I am gonna use that one the next time I win something good!

"Is that triple 7's? I just hit the Juckf****** Pott!"

I just may have to make a trip the the Urban Dictionary and add this one!

Juckf****** Pott - The winning of the mother load. To win something beyond explanation. To win a major award. "It's a major award! I hit the Juckf****** Pott! Let's celebrate Ma!"

Loss is a loss AGAIN. :thumbdown:

And to be honest all the negativity happens when teams lose especially with the way the Wings have been playing now injuries or not. And screw all the excuses of not having Dats or Lids. There will come a time when we won't have either of those players in our lineup.

I wouldn't call it a stretch but what are the chances of us not making the playoffs cause well everyone below us keeps winning minus us. I don't see us realistically losing the rest of the way out but hot damn.


lol. Yeah right

This is what scares me...everyone who made fun of me a negged me last month is seeing reality. No, no one could have predicted this, but I think everyone refused to see how fast St. Louis and Nashville were gaining, and all it took was one loss at home after the streak to knock them off their "roll" and we are now seeing this team for all it's weaknesses. The powerplay is going to be the death of them. We can all look back and say shoulda coulda woulda, but fact is, NOTHING was addressed when it needed to be addressed. Is Holland a better hockey mind than most of us? Of course, but I wasn't the only one saying that the "Old Franzen" was not going to show up and Holland relied upon certain players to step it up, pick it up and carry this team enough to NOT make a deal at the deadline. Right now and in the near future, he may be regretting that...

#2270661 Call the team out

Posted by LeftWinger on 15 March 2012 - 06:55 PM

Once again, a user neggs and is too yellow to debate!

Anyhow, Calling Out now will be useless....change is needed if the players don't show up come playoffs. There are "certain" players who take most nights off. They score in bunches and are very VERY inconsistent. If this team gets eliminated in the first round. Anyone not named Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Smith, Howard, Helm, Abdelkader and Kronwall should be "available." Trade the entire team? No, but no serious offer will be unheard. Unfortunately the guys I listed will probably be the only ones asked about....

#2270259 Call the team out

Posted by LeftWinger on 14 March 2012 - 07:36 PM

The time for calling out was the trade deadline...it's too late to call out. He already demoted Clutch Franzen. Time for calling out if certain "stars" continue to play like this in the playoffs, is draft day when the ax should fall....

You are right. I expect too much. I will wait to pass judgement on this team when it is 100% and then see what happens. I will wait to see Franzen The Great make his return in the playoffs before I spew more negativity about him, Hudler as well. I just don't like when I state my opinion and get negged for no reason or at least not debated why someone thinks I may be wrong. I could see if I said "Wings Suck" or didn't even try to put together a post, but I simply just said after the deadline that St. Louis and Nashiville were coming hard and I wouldn't be surprised if they both passed then Wings up. Of course I got laughed at and negged, but it is happening. Injuries or not, it is happening. I hope a healthy Wings team climbs back up, but Nashville and St. Louis don't seem to be slowing down. I just get pissed over the neggs because no one seems to want to say why they disagree. They just negg because someone says something bad about a Wings player. They aren't all perfect and are far from criticism, be it negative or positive. Last I checked I paid to support a discussion forum, not a forum that someone just comes in and says Red Wings are Gods and then negs everyone who says something bad about a Red Wing....sorry I expect some discussion on a discussion forum...

Here they come. Told you guys that Wings would fall behind both st louis and nashville. How does a 5th seed sound? Keep playing this way and it will be a reality....if not 6th.

Anyone still think its :hysterical: that both St Louis and Nashville will pass the Wings?

I know its because of the injuries, but its happening. Although its obvious Franzen is NOT a star.....

#2268765 Smith/Kindl/Ericsson

Posted by LeftWinger on 09 March 2012 - 10:50 PM

It'd be hard losing both Lidstrom and Stuart in the offseason.

And there's no telling if we'd get Suter. There will be a lot of teams after him, and we are no longer in the pre-salary cap era, where Detroit can just throw him the biggest contract.

I agree, but I figure maybe with the combined total of Lids and Stuart's money, they may be able to offer Suter $8M long term....dunno, I certainly hope if they both go, that Holland goes after someone big time!

#2268762 Smith/Kindl/Ericsson

Posted by LeftWinger on 09 March 2012 - 10:38 PM

So, with how Smith has been playing, and with the acquisition of Quincey, it's going to be an interesting picture when Kindl and Ericsson return from injury. I'm thinking that both of them will be left in reserve; Smith is simply playing too well right now.


I would love for Smith to remain in the lineup, but that would require Ericsson to sit. Although E is not as good as he has shown to be in previous years, I don't know if Holland will allow Babcock to have $3M+ sitting in the press box as a healthy scratch. I hope Smith and Quincey make up the #5/6 slots, but I just don't see Ericsson not playing when healthy...that's too bad.


As a matter of fact if both Stuart and Lidstrom leave next year, this is the lineup I want to see:


I can do without either or both of E and Kindl, but not too sure who would replace them.

Whoever negged my last post care to explain why? Did you think it wasn't a snoozer? Did you think everyone played great? Do you think Nyquist played crappy? Don't just neg, explain why you disagree...

#2268743 3/9 GDT : Kings 3 at Red Wings 4

Posted by LeftWinger on 09 March 2012 - 10:12 PM

a win is a win.

Injuries yes, but there are still regualar players not stepping it up...they shall remain nameless but you all know who they are.

Smith, Z, Fil played great...Helm is Helm and will be a fixture here for a long time. Migity Mac made the saves when he had to. Nyquist looked like he was excited to be here and got an assist to show for it. Hopefully he takes Hudler's spot next season.

Pretty much a snoozer game, but glad they got the 2 points...
